Our Top Picks:

Jon Rahm has the best odds and is a decent pick to win since he went to college at Arizona State. He won’t win you tons of money but always nice to win some.

Phil Mickelson has a great history when playing in this tourney.

Gary Woodland is the defending champion so he should get a long look.

Tony Finau played well last week and he can get it done.

The longshot pick (45-1) that I love in this event is Billy Horschel. He is a streaky player and is primed!
